If Spring was a Gin.
Ah, George Cassiday. No-good criminal to some, green-hatted angel to others. Upon returning from World War I, he found his homeland in the grip of Prohibition. Being a crafty devil, he set out on a business venture to supply Spirits to Capitol Hill. This led to a lucrative 10-year career of supplying booze to lawmakers, operating out of his office in the Cannon House Office Building and later the Russell Senate Office Building. He was eventually arrested, but evaded imprisonment, which should come as no surprise, considering the company he kept.
The first post-Prohibition distillery in Washington D.C., Green Hat Distillery was inspired by the green-hatted man. They produce Green Hat Gin from the best winter wheat. Oh, and the distillery was named #3 Best Craft Gin Distillery by USA Today.
Green Hat Citrus Floral Distilled Gin is their spring expression, crafted from a basket of spring botanicals. You should expect an aromatic nose of lemon and sweet orange, mingling with cherry blossom and rose petals. The palate is lively and fresh with lemon peel and grapefruit rounded up with a burst of creamy orange and juniper on the finish. The final result is a very luscious and complex Gin that'll blow your socks off in a G&T. No wonder it received Double Gold and was named Gin of the Year at the Bartender Spirits Awards.
